Today, the Starship Enterprise came home like it never has to the Smithsonian Institution.  The shooting model from the original series has undergone a one-and-a-half year reconstruction and is back on display (and not hanging above a staircase as it was when first displayed, nor inside a gift shop as it was for the last decade!). NPR had a great piece on the reconstruction. Take a read and listen!

As luck (and my job!) would have it, I’ll be in DC in just under two weeks and will drop by and take a look for myself.
